I've been slowly getting into audio engineering over the last 3 years or so, and before all I had was this metal frame dual tier keyboard stand that I used as a desk. As my studio grew, I needed a better solution. After watching Ola Englund videos with his Beat desk, I decided to look into studio desk. I've been drooling over the music commander since I first saw it, and when I finally had the funds, and one was actually available, I jumped on it without hesitation. It arrived about two weeks later, in a massive wooden crate that is now taking up entirely too much space in my garage. I put the desk together that night, and began setting everything up and running cables. After a couple weeks, I am incredibly pleased with the purchase. Assembly was easy, but do yourself a favor and have a buddy with you, i almost died when i set it down. It looks great in any room, so much space for gear! I will have this desk for years to come, and look forward to every day I get to work at it.
